July Blog Post – Grey Court 2 Paris 2016

Take A Pop Boxing is proudly supporting Amy Jackson and her team who are cycling in the Grey Court 2 Paris 2016 event starting on Sunday 17th July.

The team of riders from Grey Court School in Richmond, Surrey are cycling from London to Paris to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust and Grey Court Education Trust.

The Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for the around 7 young people aged between 13 and 24 diagnosed with cancer every day.  They build specialist units within NHS hospitals bringing young people together to be treated by teenage cancer experts in a place designed just for them.  They want every young person with cancer to have access to specialist support, no matter where they live.

Traditionally treated alongside children or elderly patients at the end of their lives, young people can feel extremely isolated during treatment, some never meeting another young person with cancer.  Being treated alongside others their own age can make a huge difference to their whole experience.

Teenage Cancer Trust also educates young people and health professionals about cancer to ensure a swift diagnosis and referral to specialist support.  Cancer in young people is rare but they want young people to know the common signs and symptoms so they can seek medical advice if they are worried.

Grey Court Foundation Trust has been established as a charity with the objective of advancing the education and welfare of all students of the School. It is intended to use funds raised in order to provide first rate resources and opportunities for everyone at Grey Court School.
